Puako Burglary Sunday Night 12/10/2017

Neighbors saw 2 people in the bushes at the first beach access trying to hide a TV underneath some palm fronds.  Police Officer Lance Ambrose came and it was discovered that the TV belonged to a nearby home in which the front door was found wide open.
No sign of a break in or how they got in other than the front door was open.
We don’t have any follow up on the 2 people or anything about them. Currently nothing else was found missing.
This is a good heads up to remind everyone that being as it is the holiday season we should make sure all valuables are locked up, to help one another by keeping an eye out in our neighborhood and to report any suspicious activity to the Police 935-3311.

More Recent Thefts

A guest staying at Beach 69 reported that his beach chair pocket was gone through while he was out swimming, binoculars and sunglasses stolen and someone else on the beach had their car keys taken from their beach pack. The suspect then took it up to the parking lot and took everything of value from their car. Police reports have been filed. Be on the lookout for a white Tacoma crew cab truck, license plate often covered with a rag.  Suspect has also syphoned gasoline in Puako, gone through the trunk of one of our rental guests cars and stolen fishing gear from a garage owner’s closet.

Speed Humps are a Success!

Since the first day the speed humps were installed I think they are a success !! Only rarely is there the crazy vehicle trying to make some irrational point. 99% of the vehicles are driving at a very respectful speed. What a difference ! I think we all can feel safer living in Puako.

Thank you County !

Puako “Speed Humps Coming”

Aloha Puako Owners,

Thank you for your great support for speed humps on the street.

The County posted a “Speed Humps Coming”sign with a contact # on the street this week.  They have heard mostly positive feed back.  The County highway division was all ready to install them in 2 weeks, but an owner from the end of the road near Paniau called to complain and it put a stop to them.

We did everything right and received 80% owner approval in favor for the humps all the way to the Catholic Church!

The County would like to hear from owners why they support the 25 mph speed hump installations. Would you please call them to explain why you feel the speed humps will help address the speeding problem?  The more owners that call will really help.

Frank DeMarco is the man at County to call and the one who did the final approval for the hump installation. His # is 961-8324.  His secretary’s name is Sharon.

All Puako owners bought their property knowing the speed limit is 25mph all the way to Paniau.

I’m hoping that owner near the end isn’t speeding to get to his home.
